  • NatmomwithGBM has replied to a post on the message board

    Hi; My mom was diagnosed at 58 with GBM 4 Nov. 2011. I live in Canada. Not sure where you live but the grants/programs we have are likely different. I'm really sorry your father and family have been affected by this disease. It's an emotional roller coaster ride. It sounds like your dad is actually in the best position in terms of longevity and functionality. Total resection is good. What are the next steps? If he c...

      I'm so very sorry for your loss. My mom has a brain tumour she has been fighting for over a year now. Same thing here-2 surgeries so far, Radiation, Temodal, Avastin and now an oral chemo. Any advice you could give me would be appreciated. My mom jusgt turned 60 and is too young to leave us!!!

              I have read many of the postings on this site and am humbled and taken aback by how many lives GBM affects. I've been a RN for 17 years and workied mainly in a Med/Surg ICU. Neuro was never my forte. I had very little knowledge and understanding about brain tumours. My mom started having headaches in mid Oct. 2011. No other real symptoms to speak of. She's a hair stylist and owns her own business and we originally th...
